aircraft carrier


Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78) – On Saturday, November 9, 2013, Newport News Shipbuilding christened the United States’ newest aircraft carrier Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78) during a ceremony on-site where the ship is being constructed.

No ship is as awesome and as impressive than the US Navy aircraft carriers. Here is a video of a day on USS John C. Stenos that carries within an air force greater than 70% of the world’s countries have. Amazing.
